We spent 3 nights at the Bristol as part of a Great Rail Journey and we will definitely return for a longer stay. The staff and management are all attentive and pleasant, and the reception staff extremely helpful. They even managed to book 6 of our group front row seats for the chamber music concert in the fortress the same night. We had room 363 at the back so weren't disturbed by the church bells, and the room was decorated and equipped to a very high standard with a very comfortable bed. The only 2 improvements we could suggest would be tea making and free wi-fi, but there is a computer cupboard in reception for checking emails. There was a safe, minibar, TV, bathrobes, umbrella, luxury toiletries, fresh flowers and ample power points, plus 4 lovely chocolates on our arrival. Every night next to the amazing period lift there was a big dish of Suchard chocolates plus a bowl of fresh apples on the reception desk. Our evening meals were very good with excellent service and the sumptuous breakfast buffet had everything, even champagne! Right behind the hotel is the Mirabelle Park, and the Old Town and Supermarket are an easy walk just across the river. With a Salzburg card you can get into attractions free and use public transport. We also used it for a free trip on the river which had an unusually witty finale, plus the funicular to the fortress for the chamber concert, which was marvellous and in such a magnificent setting. The bonus is that after the concert you get the best view of the city lit up at night before descending for an easy stroll back to the hotel. Our stay definitely left us wanting more and full marks to the owners and their excellent staff.
